Join the Joyride

This casual taco shop, from Phoenix-based restaurant group, Upward Projects, mixes modern touches and retro flair with a healthy dose of indoor-outdoor living. Set in a refurbished 1970s building, a wraparound patio with retractable floor-to-ceiling glass walls (Series 600) from Western Window Systems serves as one of the restaurant’s key features, blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor dining spaces.
